Mykonos is living proof that picture postcard destinations exist. Its many charms include iconic windmills, fabulous beaches, and an irresistible traditional town. Here you’ll discover a maze of twisting streets and alleys originally designed to confuse marauding pirates.
The quintessential Greek island, the villages of Santorini cling to its rocky cliffs. The whitewashed buildings feature brilliant blue roofs, a reflection of sea and sky. This beautiful place is said to be the birthplace of gods and, wandering its sunny streets, that is easy to believe.
Chania, Souda Bay, Crete, Greece
Crete is an ancient land of myths. Inhabited since Neolithic times, it was once the centre of Europe’s oldest civilization and, over the centuries every major power has left its mark. Countryside surrounding the charming town of Chania is dotted with green fields and olive groves.

Catania, Sicily, Italy
Optional - South to the ancient city of Syracuse, noted for its rich Greek history.
Sicily’s highest peak is the tip of that infamous firebrand, Mt Etna. Today’s Catania sits atop the Roman town, with the Greek city buried beneath. While nature has conspired to hide its rich history, many historic sites (including fine Baroque architecture) remain.
Wedged at the mouth of a deep ravine, surrounded by sheer cliffs and blue waters, this tranquil town was once a great naval power. Now, terraced hillsides support fragrant lemon groves that provide a backdrop to the thrilling coastal drive through pastel hamlets perched above the sea.
Floating just off the coast of Naples is the Isle of Capri, of song and legend. The old town includes some fascinating walks along secret pathways, with La Piazetta at its centre. Take the chairlift atop Mt Solaro for breathtaking panoramas over the countryside and Bay of Naples.
A haven for artists, writers, poets and philosophers, the warm sun and gentle sea breeze has been drawing visitors to Sorrento for millennia. Its reputation as a playground of the rich and famous saw lavish villas erected in ancient times, and an emperor’s palace relocated to nearby Isle of Capri.
Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy
After breakfast this morning we bid a fond farewell as you disembark in the glorious city of Rome. Living up to its reputation as the eternal city, Rome has something for everyone. From archaeology to Michelangelo’s masterpieces, fine cuisine and more.
